Being Grateful

I just came across this article on gratitude and wanted to pass it on…

Hope you enjoy and have a great week!

Though there is no magic spell to keep stress, troubles, and the bumps of life from happening, there is evidence that bolstering feelings of gratitude can change the way you experience those events. By helping you navigate life’s storms with greater ease, more general happiness, and a brighter sense of optimism, giving thanks can become something to be thankful for. {full article}

Happy September!

It’s not even Labor Day yet and we still technically have three weeks of summer left to go, but I always feel like September 1st is the unofficial start of fall.

I’m sad to see summer go, but I adore fall so I’m really excited to bring in this month. Hope these images get you looking forward to this colorful season too!

Instead, don’t stress, relax and know …
